He failed to resist (b) — (pre-modify the noun with a possessive) temptation and ate one of its drumsticks. When his master sat down (c) — (use infinitive), he quickly noticed the (d) — (pre-modify the noun) leg and asked him  about it. The cook replied that the duck had (e) — (pre-modify the noun) leg only. The master said that there was no such thing as a one (f) — (pre-modify the noun) duck. He insisted that this duck had only one leg. (g) — (pre-modify the verb with a present participle) angry, the master threatened (h) — (post-modify the verb with an infinitive) him from his job. The cook looked out of the window and saw some ducks (i) — (post-modify the noun with a present participle) outside in the yard.

9.         Nelson Mandela (a) — (use an appositive to post-modify noun) guided South Africa from the shackles of apartheid to a (b) —  (use adjective to pre-modify the noun) democracy, as (c) — (use determiner as pre-modifier) icon of peace and reconciliation, who came to embody justice around the world. Imprisoned for nearly (d) — (use a quantifier)  decades for his fight against white minority rule, Mandela (e) —  (pre-modify the verb) lost his resolve to fight for his (f) — (possessive as pre-modifier) emancipation. He was determined to bring down apartheid while avoiding a (g) — (use adjective as pre-modifier) war.

Recently Pakistan’s National Assembly may be within its rights (d)  — (use an infinitive phrase to post modify the verb) for the execution of two collaborators.
